ive basically come to the decision that i will be purchasing one of these 2 bikes. i'm leaning more towards giant because i like the idea of the disk brakes ( in my heart i know thats a bit silly ). i want a bike that can handle loaded touring. i know that the gears will need to be changed on the trek. any reasons to go with one over the other? the giant msrp is a bit higher. dealer said $1000. for the Trek and $1300. for the giant.
any thoughts appreciated
